Why Vanguard

At Vanguard, we’re a different kind of investment management company. One that’s owned by our funds, which in turn are owned by our shareholders. No conflicting loyalties means we’re focused on our clients—and on the success of our crew. Because when you’re changing investing for millions of people, you’re part of something that’s bigger than one person or one company; you’re part of change.

Benefits and Work Perks

Just like each of our clients who have their own investing needs, we understand that each of our crew members have their own personal and family needs. Our Total Rewards package can help you improve your health, advance your education, secure your retirement and more.

Health and wellness

Here, doing good for clients goes hand in hand with feeling good and being well. Our comprehensive health benefits offer you many opportunities to live your best life with best-in-class medical, dental and vision coverage. Feel cared for with our many wellness perks like CrewCare, our onsite health clinic; ShipShape, our onsite fitness center; and our Health Smart Rewards program.

Retirement and savings

Just as we strive to offer the best chance at success for our investors, we strive to do the same for our crew. Our Vanguard Retirement Savings Plan allows you to create a portfolio that fits your needs—and receive up to 4% in matched contributions from us, and 10% contribution without condition. Plus, you’ll get the tools you need to save for both big moments and small.

Education benefits

We believe that growth should be fostered inside the office and out. That’s why we offer you the tools to reduce student loan debt, continue your education, and even help fund your children’s schooling.

Paid time off

Your time is valuable. That’s why we offer you the paid time off (PTO) you need to relax, recharge and return ready to make a difference for your clients and yourself. Spend time with family and friends, enjoy your hobbies and travels and let those experiences enrich your career.

Family

Family is important to our crew, which means it’s important to us too. From generous maternity packages and adoption and surrogacy support, to paid time off to care for seriously ill family members, we offer you a range of family planning benefits that you can always rely on.

Culture

Our crew are our culture

Each and every member of our crew brings their knowledge, understanding and skills to connecting our clients with the investment opportunities that make a difference. Open to learning and innovation, they also share their time and talents with each other. Add your unique experience to the mix and see what it’s like to change an industry with us.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Vanguard, every moment counts. Every idea counts. And every voice counts. We believe that the diversity of our crew is a reflection of our clients. It represents a changing global marketplace—strengthened by inclusion and a sense of belonging. Here we champion the abilities and ambitions of our crew throughout their careers. With the support of their teammates and our Crew Resource Groups (CRGs) we are focusing on enriching the experiences of Women, Black, Asian, Hispanic/Latino, and LGBTQ professionals, as well as our service-minded military veterans and friends through our VetsConnect network. Because when different perspectives are shared, we have even more opportunities to innovate and step forward for our investors everywhere.

Continuous Learning

We invest in our people. At Vanguard, we’re committed to helping you learn and grow, in every position and every department. Our biggest priority is your personal development, now and throughout your Vanguard journey. This is done through formal programs, networking opportunities with leaders from a variety of experiences and backgrounds, and ensuring that along the way, you have the tools you need to make it count. We want you to continue to succeed, beyond even your own expectations.

In the Community

Our crew powers progress

For us, changing an industry isn’t enough. A career here is more than just meeting the responsibilities of your role. It’s going further by giving back to the communities we call home. Enjoy one paid day off each year to give back in any way with Volunteer Time Off. Or donate your time and talent by organizing and participating in projects like our hunger relief drives and our Vanguard-sponsored Days of Service. Expand your impact to the wider world.
